Island School Hong Kong, a French Dude plays the accordion and the Nan Lian Garden on a sunny day
Hong Kong has been building public housing (subsidised by the Government) since the mid 1950's and approximately 49% of Hong Kong's population lives in some form of Government Housing! and currently there is a very long waiting list for this affordable housing. Depending on who is issuing the figures it is anything from 3 years to 7 years.
Man Cheung House in North Point on the eastern end of Hong Kong Island is a typical older example of this type of housing and it very tidy, clean, it has gardens and exercise area's and there is no graffiti in evidence. This is affordable housing Hong Kong style.
The old red brick building on the hill was my first "high" school in Hong Kong in 1972.. we did move into new premises next door and even the new school from 1972 is going to be replaced by a brand new school, that show's how old I am!
I have fond memories of Island School.
It would probably never occur to this chap that he looked like a muppet playing French music on an accordion - he looked like an extra from the old TV series Allo, Allo! plonker.
What a lovely sunny day view, one of my favourite images taken at the Nan Lian Garden in Diamond Hill.

At least they don't bite!

I do personal walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 37 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.
Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....
...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.
